Which one should I go for and why? which one would be better in the long run and how often would I need to upgrade each one?

If you're not into overclocking get the regular 4670 and this way will save you money on MOBO, you know the Z (overclocks) MOBO are as about twice as normal ones; also throw away the wifi adapter most MOBOs nowdays got great build in wifi and soundcards.
And stick with the 270X if you're not planning on OC, this way you're saving 40£.
ALSO you've forgot CPU cooler
I've done a little edit:
(overall saved you 20£ while adding CPU cooler to it)
I dont really plan on overclocking, but I will look at the other graphics card, thanks for the replys everyone
Overclocking your GPU is super easy.
Overclocking your CPU is still easy, but a lot more work and time consuming than your GPU.
Edit: It is understandable if you don't want to do either of them, however I strongly suggest looking into OC the GPU. If it has a good cooler, you can very easily get more out of it.
I have FX-8120 and there's absolutely nothing that has slowed me down just yet. Get intel if you're not on a budget. But if you are FX-8320 will still be a good buy. You can OC FX series pretty well (they're unlocked CPUs).
Your AMD (build is almost like mine). I have the same mobo it's a pretty good mobo for that price, I also have GTX 760 and 1TB Barracuda. Go with GTX 760 over R270. It's a bit more powerful and great for OC.
@PredatorRules: I have broadband internet, so I think I do?
The only problem with the gtx 760 is that it is out of my budget
So, unless you're expecting from your PC that you build to recieve connection via wifi just like Laptops do it's pointless to get a wifi adapter.
If the PC i've built you is perfect in your price range get it; I couldn't build any better PC; if you're really into budget PC and you're not planning on getting another GPU to crossfire I'd recommend you getting the Corsair 200R case - it comes with front intake and rear exhaust and it's all you'll ever need, trust me I'm using REX3 with same 1 front and 1 rear combo and it works like charm and my R9 280X is getting a bit hotter than R9 270X I think =) you can always add 2 more side and 2 top fans if you'd like to.
I am not going to be using ethernet thought? or is there a receiver in the board?
EDIT: is this better http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/SidTheSloth/saved/38qn ?
Yes, I'm not sure about the PSU, I'd get Corsair CX500 or Antec or SeaSonic.
ASRock 970 specs:
- PCIE x1 Gigabit LAN 10/100/1000 Mb/s
- Realtek RTL8111E
- Supports Wake-On-LAN
- Supports LAN Cable Detection
- Supports Energy Efficient Ethernet 802.3az
- Supports PXE
So yeah as I told you before throw that adapter away.
